Fleet Foxes -- Columbus, OH -- October 8th, 2008
Craziest, most fucked-up, potentially worst night of my life...
Fleet Foxes were awesome though. The opener, Frank Fairfield, was fucking weird. Like a Woody Guthrie who can't carry a tune. Fleet Foxes were excellent, and quite probably had the funniest onstage banter of any band I've seen (aside from possibly Opeth). The band joked about McCain's "that one" comment from the second presidential debate, about the prodigious amounts of free Evian provided by the venue ("It was left over from the bath."), and an interactive Fellowship vs. Return argument with the crowd. Fun stuff.
